Chrome rims

Anyone have chrome rockstars, how hard are they to keep clean and how do they hold up to the weather? Or if you have any chrome xd's let me know how hard it is to keep them clean and if they are hard to clean. Thanks

All the aftermarket chrome wheels I've ever ran in the winter gets messed up. The chrome starts peeling off.

i have chrome kmc monsters on my truck and they are super easy to clean.. if your up north your gonna have to pay more attention to your rims bc of the salt.. but just clean and wax them and you will be ok!

They already are clear coated, at least my machined wheels are. I'm planning on running mine through winter, like he said pay close attention to them and spray the salt off and use wax to protect the clear. I only have about 1000 miles on my wheels and I have waxed them 3 times. Lol. I don't drive the truck everyday

just go for the chrome man... if you do get a bunch of snow just pull your truck in the garage and take a wet rag and clean your wheels.. might take you 15-20 mins
